Subject: RE: Michael Collins (not again)
Also on a previous thread there was discussion of the correct spelling and meaning of "Beal na Blath". If memory serves, Father Patrick Twohig, a native speaker from Cork, and historian too, insists that the spelling should be "Beal na mBlath" (apparently the "m" is very important), and the meaning refers to a "ravine", not to "flowers".
